Myron Vishnefske

Myron Lee Vishnefske died Friday, January 17, 2020, at Hillcrest Firethorn Home in Lincoln, Nebraska, at the age of 61.

Myron married Tina Garst in April 1983 and to this union two daughters were born, Chrissa and Andrea; they later were divorced.

Myron was preceded in death by his parents.
